    bc seafloor

    I was reading a story on CBC online tonight about cold water corals. Well they call them corals but you guys know what they mean anyway :b15:

    I just thought I would share it along with a video of last years robotic dive where they are accessing sessile inverts of the coast of BC.

    Here are three pictures I took the last time I was in Vancouver. These are anemones and I think they're pretty but it would cost an absolute fortune to keep the water temperature down where it needs to be and the tank would be constantly frosted. You would have to keep a squeegee beside it to clean off the condensation.

    Cool pics Hank (no pun intended)

    It would be neat to set up a tank like that, I think you would need a closed off room and cool it like a walk in refridgerator.

    The water temperature was VERY cold. You could probably do it with a small tank using a chiller. It would have to be a very small tank or it would cost a fortune to chill.
